Martin Pizem(Communication&visibility coordinator)
Graduated the Philosopher University in Nitra in 2016 with master´s degree from culture and tourism management. Since then (and also during his studies) he has been developing his practice in branches of culture, tourism and art. He has worked as a marketing manager in Destination management organisation Slovak Paradise & Spiš, a marketing and sales manager in Hotel Metropol****, Spišská Nová Ves and as a marketing and production manager in Revúca – Slovak City of culture 2022. He also has decent skills in copywriting and PR from several other projects that he has taken a part of.
As the coordinator of communication and visibility activities of Machaon International, Martin was involved in the innovation project Creative mountains. His work supporting national park Slovak Paradise has inevitably brought him into contact with cultural and socio-economic development issues in rural areas. He became familiar with work with local communities, bloggers and photographers, folklore collectives, farmers and craftsmen.
Besides his regular job Martin is an active musician, playing guitar and singing with two Slovak bands, Smola a Hrušky and Fretimers. He also leads a Youth Music club in Spišská Nová Ves town – a space, where young and non-professional musicians meet, unite and learn to play together. In a spare time, Martin loves being active. Sports like mountain biking, hiking or swimming, travelling and visiting new places, tasting foods from different countries and visiting music events are his favourite things to do.
Martin speaks fluent English and has a basics in Spanish, too.
